I was wondering if I could propose support for DDS files. I did a forum search and couldn't find any existing feature requests for this. I do heavy graphics design and texturing in PC games I play and most all of them use DDS file formats for the textures. As far as 3D Luts and tonemapping go this program has it covered. I moved over from GIMP to this and was more than willing to pay the $$$ for the app because of the ease of use and light learning curve associated with the application and so, so many features when the aformentioned things are compared to GIMP (in its' defense it is free though). But to be able to do texture editing and things of that sort for gaming graphic desings I need to be able to open, edit, and export DDS in their various compressions and formats. I know you support some PS plugins but from what I've found through searches on Goolge this program sdoesn't support the PS DDS plugin; not to mention it's a Nvidia based plugin and I use AMD GPUs. If you could support DDS natively it would be greatly appreciated. Right now I'm using Affinity Photo for everything else but GIMP still for DDS. GIMP, btw, has a DDS pluging that is independent of Nvidia or AMD. If memory serves correctly all of their stuff is open source as well. Here's the link to their plugin if your team woulsd be interested in taking a look at its' mechanics and possibly incorporating something similar into Affinity. Also, there's a link for a plugin that does normal maps. That is another very common and needed texture present in PC games. DDS Plugin Normal Map Plugin
